I have one 123 yard skein of Filatura di Crosa 501- a washable, worsted wool. (Wow- I totally was not planning that)It's left over from my gloves (the lady at the yarn shop said I would definitely need 2 skeins, and I ended up using only one)and ideally I would like to make a scarf to go with the gloves. I know it isn't very much yardage, but could I get a thin scarf out of it? Any reccommendations?

You could at least get a hat out of it.

You should be able to get a thin scarf out of it. I used about 90 yds on size 11 needles in garter stitch - 12 stitches wide and it came out about 42 inches long. I plan on adding some beads to the ends to make it appear a little longer.

Or you could do drop stitch garter. Knit 2 or 4 rows of garter, knit 1 row wrapping the yarn 2 or more time around the needle for each stitch, drop the extra wraps as you knit the next row, continue alternating a few rows of garter with a row of drop stitches.

You could do a dice bag with it.

I keep one in my purse to hold my change in.

How about some wristlets to match your gloves and keep you warm? You could pick up stitches or make them detachable.
You could also make a wrap/headband for your ears to match the gloves.
